Kate, Wendy, Lesley, Fifi, Becky & Jo


I stamped 'Dress & Bow Maggie' from 'Bootiful Stampz' with black stazon. Then watercoloured her in and added a gem to the flower in her hair. I then stamped the "once upon a time by Heidi Grace. Ribbon was then passed through two eyelets. And a large flower added with a checked brad.

I stamped the gorgeous 'dungarees Maggie' from Bootiful Stampz our sponsor for this week onto white card with black archival ink. Maggie is coloured with prismacolor pencils and sansodor and a touch of red glitter, I then cut her out. I cut a strip of pearescent white card to size then embossed it with the CB hearts folder. I glued Maggie to the bottom of the card. Using red paper I die cut the letters. I cut out the heart from red paper and attached a gold heart brad to the centre. I arranged the letters onto the card. I laminated the strip of card and then attached an eyelet at the top and threaded this with red ribbon

I stamped 'Party Maggie' onto patterned paper and pieced her together. I then highlighted areas with distress inks and a white gel pen. I matted her onto patterned paper and surrounded her with 10 flowers using 8 brads and 2 eyelets! I finished the card with a hand written 'hippy chick' greeting.

I covered the card in backing paper, stamped the 'Maggie Heart T-Shirt' image and coloured her in, adding some Stickles to the heart and hair. I then attached the image with eyelets to a mat then added to the card. I stamped a Happy Birthday message, and finished off with some Primas with heart brads in the centres.

I made a circle shape card. I used this beautiful 'Flower top Maggie' stamp by Bootiful Stampz. I coloured her in with watercolours & distress inks. I drew a patten of hearts, swirls and flowers and stuck lots of silver beads on. The papers I used were purple card stock and Basic grey: Perhaps - Beatrice. I drew some stitching around the edges and used distress inks around the edges of my card. I embellished with white ribbon and paper flowers and some bronze brads.

This week we were given a stamp from the Bootiful Stampz range to use alongside the challenge of *Brads and/or Eyelets! * This was a fab stamp 'Red Riding Maggie' and I have had a look at some of the other images - I am definitely into 'cute' and my wish list has just got a lot longer! For my card I have used background papers from the Cute Companion CD and the JS Fashion Boutique CD. My image has been coloured with pens and I have embellished with white lace, Prima flowers, stamped leaves, gems and *Diamanté brads* adorn the photo corners.
